DONE DEAL: Bayer Leverkusen confirm signing of Genk winger Leon Bailey

Leon Bailey has completed his transfer to Bayer Leverkusen from KRC Genk.

The Jamaican winger has joined the German Bundesliga club for a fee of around £11.5million.

Bailey was a target for a number of Premier League clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and more recently Hull City, but Leverkusen have beaten them all to the punch.

A statement from Bayer read: "Leon Bailey has joined Bayer 04 Leverkusen from KRC Genk.

"The 19-year-old Jamaican midfielder signed a contract with the Werkself through 2022."
